Paint.NET is free image and photo manipulation software designed to be used on computers that run Windows. It supports layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools. Paint.Net started development as an undergraduate college senior design project mentored by Microsoft, and is currently being maintained by some of the alumni that originally worked on it. Originally intended as a free replacement for the MS Paint software that comes with Windows, it has grown into a powerful yet simple tool for photo and image editing.
Paint.Net is simple, intuitive, and uses an innovative user interface, the usage of layers are very handy and support can be obtained from Active Online Community and the tutorials. The frequent updations of the program helps to try new features. This program have got nice special effects and image manipulation capability.
Powerful tools for drawing shapes, and an unlimited history with an "Open Source and Free" tag helps Paint.Net to be ahead of its competitors.

Paint.Net can be downloaded for free from
